Fergie Practising for Strictly

The BBC is engaged in a search for the next loveable twit to take part in the 2011 Strictly Come Dancing.

The Inspector General of the Beeb announced there was only one other main criterion, besides being a loveable twit and that was that they couldn't dance.

Several out of work twits have offered their services, among them the twins loved by many : Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. However the BBC considered that if they selected one of them it would show political bias against the Government which might then cut the TV licence fee.

Margaret Thatcher was another favourite but it was feared there could be a disaster should she succumb during a Jive.

A BBC spokesperson gave guidance to would be celebrities, mentioning: 'We need someone who everybody loves. A National Treasure who will do anything for publicity.'

Elton John turned down the offer as he didn't need the money and it is rumored that Wayne Rooney is in the running for the job.

His friend Fergie is also a hot favourite. Sarah is hard up and needs the money to keep on her feet.

So who should it be? Send your suggestions to the BBC's Inspector General by November 1st, 2010.
